Nice - I see Debussy's portrait and Beethoven's bust, who is the other bust on the Kawai?

Sam


That's Chopin, along with a little Polish flag. On the wall behind the Yamaha is Brahms, Chopin and Clara Schumann, and on the Kawai wall, yep, Debussy and Satie, and the big one in the middle is a picture of Chopin's grave in Paris that my friend took for me this past summer. smile

The kitty's name is Alastor, and he's a bit of a chub, LOL. He LOVES music! Our other kitty, Drake, is too active to photograph very often. Alastor's not as athletic, LMAO!!

Currently working on Bach 2 part inventions, Chopin mazurkas, and some Keith Snell Level 5 stuffs, lol. smile

Thank you, again. Comfy it is, yes. One thing I insisted on was a good furnace. Apparently the one it has is good enough for 2 houses this size. You may think that we being Canadian, love the cold, but the truth is we only endure it and love to complain about it. This place is toasty and I've become better friends with the snow shovel too as we get tons of it here. Yep, that's the kitchen and here is better angle for that. Not a room in this house that won't need some work, but all in time and at least I'll be warm in the meanwhile. smile

That keyboard is smiling!

Here is my woman cave! For the sake of the picture I moved everything a bit closer.

This is what it looks like when I play music from a score. I record my playing almost daily, both with a wire to my laptop (audio only) and by making videos with my phone, so recording equipment is always close.
And the white stuff on my windows is what we call "frost flowers". It is cold outside!

Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

Nice! It's a nice composition with the frost flowers framed by the two spider plants. Very cheerful when playing piano smile

Marantz, possibly?

I used to have a Carver amp, preamp, and Polk towers. Finally sold them - I got more for the Carver amp than I paid 25 years earlier, and it didn't even work (one of the channels was blown). The guy said he didn't care, probably just needed a new tube.

Well, since you asked.... laugh

Turntable is a VPI Prime with a Soundsmith MIMC star cartridge. That is paired with an EAR 834P phono preamp. This goes into an Ars-Sonum Gran Filarmonia tube integrated amp, then finally to Merlin VSM-MMM speakers. Mostly all Cardas Parsec cables. It's my other passion, and I hope (!) I am done upgrading that system now.

I just got the VPI in early Spring and absolutely love it. The speakers were made right here in Upstate, NY (until the company founder died a few years ago)--I bought them on Audiogon a year ago or so.

The amp is gorgeous. Not a lot of folks know of the brand, but they are hand built in Spain, and they seem to pair well with the Merlins. Conveniently, my audio guy (who just happens to live not 5 minutes from me) is the only North American dealer for them. He also rebuilds and repairs Merlin speakers, since he knew the owner very well.

Recognise the folding table. Got one myself; it's either next to the computer, or the piano depending on whether my she's using it or me . . . .invaluable little item!

Wait. Is it possible to be done upgrading one's audio system as a card-carrying audiophile? Please explain how that works.

That's interesting that he's set up to service these after the company founder died. I have a pair of almost 30 yr old Apogee ribbon speakers that need some tender loving care, only I don't know how to service them any more since the company went out of business, so they are sitting in storage. frown Sitting in boxes next to them are a pair of Krell monoblocks which are almost as old as the Apogees and way overkill for the Apogees, but I thought they drove the Apogees very nicely and sounded good. They could use some servicing too, but I've been reluctant as I don't want to have anything to do with Krell Industries since they fired D'Agostino, the founder. I will probably eventually sell them and will probably send them to Krell to be refurbished before I do that.

Anyways, two big thumb thumb on being a "discerning man with taste" wink

BTW, how did you find your audio guy? I need one myself so I don't have to fiddle myself with all of these things... I'd like to hand the keys to an audio guy myself, to take care of for me! smile

This is my Yamaha keyboard (full size) in my 20 foot travel trailer. It's a tight fit - have to fold up the table. I'm sitting on the bed to take the picture. The keyboard sits on an X stand and I use a folding stool. I have to put it up and take it down when I want to practice, and I have to keep it in the truck since storage space is at a minimum in a camper this small. But I can't miss practicing when we are out on a camping adventure!

Nice, Sam! I thought living in the woods in Georgia was a camping adventure all the time! We used to have a place in Ellijay. The bears, the 6 foot rattlesnakes, wild dogs, scorpions, bats - it was like a wildlife conservatory up there.

Don't forget the deer, turkey, armadillos, possums, and raccoons...
